In his second State of the Union speech, U.S. President Donald Trump outlined his vision for the country’s foreign policy.
He also announced a new summit later this month in Vietnam with Kim Jong Un, the leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. On the domestic front, one of the themes of the speech was “unity.”
The address, originally scheduled for last week, was delayed because of the partial government shutdown – caused by a rift between the president and the opposition.
